Greetings,

I am new to Celiac Biz. I have been gluten-free for about 2 1/2 weeks. I am also allergic to almonds. I was wondering anyone could suggest some great gluten-free personal care products.

I am Italian, have long curly hair. If anyone could suggest a gluten-free detangler or miracle conditioner, ANTI_FRIZZ, as well as hair dyes. I have never had reactions to my hair care products until I gave up Gluten. I am not sure what is going on, but am having a really bad hair day! I have contacted Garnier and they have told me that their products are gluten-free, they were certain about the their new line of products though. I usuallly use Redkin and that is clearly not working out for me. My head itches so bad! YIKES! I was also using treseme.

My dermatologist told me that I should not be having any reactions to my products and thinks that I may be allergic to more than gluten, oh joy!

Any help would be greatly appreciated, anything from lotions, soaps, PERFUMES, make-up, dryer sheets, cleaning products. ANYTHING!

Does anyone know if Victoria Secret perfumes and lotions are gluten-free.

Does anyone know any stores in NH or internet sites, mail order, where I would be able to order gluten-free products?

Many thanks

Sara

Hi I read your post and I can tell you that Dove products are safe, make up you have to read which is pain, softsoap is safe,I was told that most of Burts Bees products are safe they have a shampoo and conditioner w/ grapefruit, Dawn dishsoap is ok, and I emailed Victoria Secret about there products. I will let you know when I hear something. As far as stores.....http://www.kinnikinnick.com for breads that taste good or gluten free.com. for other foods. I do not know what stores you have by you look to see if you have a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe's. This is a life changing thing and I'm not going to lie to you its hard. I have been gluten free for almost 5 months and I just recently found out I am dairy intolerant which does and can happen after you are gluten-free. I will let you know about the VS products. Hope I helped a little?

I have not been able to find any dryer sheets that do not contain gluten. If anyone knows of one, please post it.

I use the Dove shampoo, since I gave up my treasured Pantene products. I don't think that Treseme is gluten-free. As for make-up and moisturizers, Nutregena is usually pretty good, but you have to read the labels. You may need to contact the comapny directly to ask about a specific ingrediant.

Hope this helps!

Worriedwife,

If you have a Wegman's near you, their "Free of Dyes and Perfumes" fabric softener sheets are gluten-free. I verified that via email.

Definately contact Neutrogena about any product you're interested in. There's a gluten-free list floating around, but I've spoken to that company on several occasions, and there are products on that list that shouldn't be. I use their Foaming Face Cleanser and the SPF 15 Face Moisture--those are gluten-free for sure.

Dove will clearly list any gluten on the label, and Garnier has many gluten-free products--you can call them to verify, they are very nice. I use their Smoothing Milk for my hair and love it.

In addition to the products already mentioned Giovanni organic hair products are gluten-free, or were the last I checked. I use the 50/50 shampoo and the smooth as silk conditioner. They also have a serum that is for curly hair that is antifrizz and I had good luck with it. I also will use pure coconut oil, a very light amount if my hair seems real dry. Suave is another company that will clearly label gluten ingredients according to their rep. I use a couple of their lotions with good results.

Many thanks. The dairy thinks doesn't sound like much fun and I will be in big trouble, because I have lived on Ice Cream and cheese for the past three weeks. I need to meet with a nutritionist next week.

You helped a lot.

Funny, I should come across this topic! I can help with the Victoria's Secret question. They said that their Garden Collection, (Love Spell, Amber Romance, Pure Seduction, Pear Glace, Strawberries and Champagne, My Desire, etc.) is gluten-free...but they can't guarantee that any of their other products are. I actually work at VS and I was checking the labels of all our beauty products today and it looks like most of the Insatiable shower gel/shampoos have gluten in them, (the company releases 3 new scents about every 4 months-some scents include Key Lime Lust, Carmel Kiss, Chocolate Covered Berries, etc.) but the lotions look okay. I'm just learning how to read beauty product labels, so don't quote me....jeez, it took long enough to read FOOD labels! :P I think the haircare is also out of the question. I'm not quite sure about the Dream Angels collection, (Heavenly, Desire, Divine, Halo) because I don't wear those fragrances, but if you call HR they are very accomodating and nice. I hope this helps some of you out!

I was looking for some men's skin care products recently and came across a web store that actually has a gluten-free list of skin/body care products. www.skin-spa.com/glutenfree.htm has stuff for men and women. My wife was excited about this because she contacted them and is getting some free samples to try. They seem knowledgeable. I think the owner has celiac disease.

I have been gluten free for 6 months now but have had difficulty with my skin and scalp when it comes to hair care products, lotions, makeup etc. When I use products with gluten in them, I breakout in cyst like lesions on my chest, back, and face, itchy scalp and pustules. It has taken months for the cysts to go away and I'm not sure if they will leave any scars. Some of the blog/forums I read mentioned that it is not likely that gluten would be absorbed into the skin because the molecules are too big. Well that is not true for me and it may not be true for you either. Our skin absorbs 90% of what we place on it!

I just wanted to post some gluten free products that I have been using without any skin or scalp reactions.

Haircare:

Max Green Alchemy Scalp Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner (online)

Max Green Alchemy Texture Paste

Paul Mitchell Soft Spray Hair Spray

Face Products:

Rhonda Allison glycolic wash

Rhonda Allison Impure face mask

Rhonda Allison Pumice Wash

Skin Ceuticals Serums

Neocutis moisturizers and sunblock

Be careful of pumpkin products by Rhonda Allison...I had a skin reaction to them even though they do not have gluten in them.

Mascara:

NARS mascara (Sephora)

Make up:

Bare Escentuals foundation, eye shadows (Full list of gluten free products on their website)

Pangea Organics lip balm

Soaps:

Pangea Organics body bar soap

Pangea Organics hand soap

Tom's of Maine bar soap (All of Tom's of Maine products are gluten free)

Body oils and lotions:

Pangea Organics body oil (All of Pangea organics is gluten free)

Pangea Organics body lotion

Lubriderm lotion with 30 SPF sunscreen

Coppertone sunblock

Deodorant:

Secret Clinical protection

Toothpaste:

Tom's of Maine

Hope this list helps get you started on some gluten free products. The grocery guide also has some gluten free hair care and skin care products.

Hi!

I am also Celiac with Curly Hair! I have used Kinky Curly products on my hair since I went gluten free a year and a half ago. I LOVE their products! You can get them at Whole foods or Target, or online at their website: Kinky Curly. The great thing is that they smell fantastic too! I usually shampoo and apply a small amount of the conditioner which I leave in. I follow with the curling custard and finger curl my hair before letting it air dry. I may also use some of the Aubrey Natural Misst hairspray to finish. Hope this helps!

Naturally Curly.com has a link to wheat/gluten free products here: Naturally Curly

BTW, if you have dry scalp along with your curly hair (which is common-you'll have an itchy scalp and may see white flakes) you can deep condition your scalp by massaging about 1 oz of coconut oil into your scalp/hair and leaving it on your head (I wrap my head with a towel) for about 30 minutes before shampooing. You can then follow up with an Apple-Cider vinegar rinse (2T apple-cider vinegar to one cup water) to clarify and and shine. It's worked wonders for me and helped calm the itchies that I can get as a result of dryness.

      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
